A change in use

At the smallest scale, everyday objects inherent uses are adapting. A dining table is now not just for formal dining but a surface for a multitude of activities.

1:20 cell model

Flexible space weaves around more ‘concrete’ servant cores.

View into a cell

Social and private space is defined by servant spaces, changes in level and axis. A ‘Duchamp’ door creates an extended space either belonging to the private domain or the more social.

Section through a cell

Space is reordered through activities rather than defined by rooms.

Section through a block

The section tries to explore the relation between a more interwoven relationship between domesticity and labour. Small open courtyards and changes in levels help distinguish changes in use and privacy.

1:500 massing model

Using a 3x3m grid I explored multiple variants of masses siting within the context of the block.

1:100 structural model

The oversized timber truss along the ‘horizontal fly tower’ allows space for environmental systems, and to not hide them away.

1:100 tectonic model

Exploring the relation of a skeletal timber structure against a solid mass.

Bay study

This early facade study makes use of cheap and readable materials. The timber colonnade supports a space for display, storage and performance, allowing the activity within to be expressed externally.

1:50 technical section through the performative space

This section through the building shows the relationship of the timber performative pavilion against the more ‘concrete’ servant spaces.
